Rudo Radio Episode 61: Backlash was great, and Lucha Underground is back

We recapped a busy (and successful!) week in wrestling, starting with Backlash and ending up back in Lucha Underground

Welcome to this week’s episode of Rudo Radio, where myself and Nick Bond discuss SmackDown’s first post-brand-split pay-per-view, Backlash, as well as this week’s RAW and the return of Lucha Underground. Hooray, Lucha Underground, whose villain is definitely not Dr. Claw, despite what my co-host might try to tell you.

AJ Styles, Becky Lynch, and the team of Heath Slater and Rhyno are all champions on the blue brand now, and we’re down with all of those decisions and how they got to them. RAW was also a fun episode this week, with just a little filler mixed in but plenty of Important Things, and we talk a bit about their exceptional use of the women’s division on Monday as well as their making Jack Swagger look like hell before switching him to Tuesdays.

You can rate, review, and subscribe to us on iTunes — in fact, we’d really appreciate it. You can also leave us questions to answer in next week’s episode in the comments here at Cageside Seats, or by tweeting at either Nick Bond (@THEN1CKSTER) or myself (@Marc_Normandin).
